Schloss Lichtenberg - Castle Lichtenberg

Castle Lichtenberg, Fischbachtal 2017

The castle of Lichtenberg is located in the southern part of the Fischbachtal. Little is known about the origin of Lichtenberg Castle in the Middle Ages. The first documentary mention of Lichtenberg is now adopted for the year 1228. Since the 16th century, the Lichtenberg castle brilliantly illuminates over the Odenwald hillside.

The castle was used as a starting point for the hunt, but after the 30 years war it was empty and was more and more yield to decay over the centuries. Today, the castle is owned by the state of Hesse and is used as a living space, museum, and venue.
